The Strokes are to play their first London show in five years at Hyde Park this summer.
The band will be joined by Beck whose latest album Morning Phase won Album of the Year and Rock Album of the Year at this year’s Grammy Awards, much to Kanye West’s dissatisfaction.
Luckily Kanye will not be present to interrupt Beck at Hyde Park in June. Instead, the American singer-songwriter will be joined by Future Islands who return to the festival after performing last year.
The full supporting line-up also includes British rock band Temples, musical duo Public Service Broadcasting, three-piece psych band The Wytches, British singer-songwriter Kieran Leonard, Spanish girl band Hinds, indie band Gengahr and London-based trio Yak.
Jim King, senior vice president of BST’s Live Events, said: “It’s hugely exciting to have The Strokes back in London for a UK festival exclusive. They’ve handpicked a great support bill and it’s going to be an amazing night out. With such a great catalogue of hits as well as some new music this is unmissable for music fans.”
Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday 6 March.
